I've read through the forums up to page 19 today (first day I played the game), os please forgive me if I asked something that was previously asked.
<LI>What does the 'speed' switch in the F6 screen do? p17 at the bottom of the manual has about one line to describe it - but fails miserably.
<LI>I'm not sre if I am doing it right (picked up the idea from the forum), but every now and again I stop and use the 'L' function (forgot it's name - searching a 360 circle with sound for other ships). I can't see a way to add a protractor or any equivalent angle measuring device which you can use to point the direction the enemy is from your course. I use the ruler to extend my position and the enemy's from their current couse and then try to intercept. I can't find an accurate way to see what angle they are from me (at present I am holding a bit of paper up to the screen)
<LI>In the career mode, you are to patrol a grid for an hour - fine, but is there a way to end the mission? Do you just press 'esc' or do you have to sail all the way back into the dock?
<LI>I currently haven't installed any patched due to feedback I have read here - which should I install and what do they fix compared to the new 'bugs' they spawn?
<LI>What does the radar operator do? I can't get him to identify targets, or anything else for that matter? Am I missing something?
<LI>The problem of seeing a haze of white when looking through the bincos straight ahead, or behind - I heard that there is a solution to press ctrl(or shift, I forget)+p, but this does nothing for me. Again, am I missing something?[/list]
